My second day at the MB NY Fashion Week was somehow diverse and intriguing, in the sense that it was a blend of different styles and lifestyles. It started with Carmen Marc Valvo and a sharp type of glamour infused with provocative contrasts and luxurious details! Lots of red and black on body-flattering silhouettes!
Then, at the Nautica show, I came across the ski culture and was impressed by a very refined and sportive collection focusing on functionality and comfort. I loved the total white ski looks and the many little details destined to offer comfort when in action! I also liked very much the smart layering of the pieces that can definitely battle freezing cold outside.
Later, at Charlotte Ronson’s show at the Hudson Hotel I had the chance to relax and enjoy upbeat music and hipster fashion. Models were standing but also walked on stage in rotation while the DJ set made many people feel in the mood for more motion! I think that this time Charlotte went for a more mature version of her signature style using more interesting techniques and emphasizing the idea of put-togetherness! Hairstyles were perfection and so did many of the looks, some of them featuring great combos with leather!
Finally, at Emerson I discovered a different mix of urban elegance, biker culture and modern-day edginess with outfits representstive of the hard and soft interplay. Many flowing fabrics and transparencies – but also leather and wool – tailored in asymmetries in dark shades and neutals, supported the idea of dark, wearable glamour and of a modern girl who wants to have a strong visual impact without looking too fancy!
And after all these cultures and lifestyles on the catwalks, I decided to dip into the world of modern gastronomy by going for dinner to Tertulia, West Village! I had an insurmountable desire for Spanish food and a different culture! Food was great and the Brussels sprouts from this seductive menu are a personal recommendation! So stay tuned for more of my NYFW coverage coming soon!
